Quality New Year Retreat

Claudia teaches Loving Care yoga which she describes as all the yummy postures we love as follows;

“Do you ever dream to go to a yoga class just to enjoy the relaxing poses, the enjoyable ones! (child poses, relaxing twists, long shavasana, etc, etc,) those ones that makes you feel you are a step closer to heaven, just dissolving your stress and worries away ? “

Claudia’s classes on this retreat will consist in a beautiful blend of gentle stretching, relaxing and restorative poses to melt away physical and mental tension and deeply rest the mind and body.

We combine deep and yet easy stretches using yoga props (chairs, blocks, belts, bolsters) and restorative poses to release the stress of your week, increase flexibility, range of movement and posture.

We help you to create body awareness so you can easily adjust your posture during your normal day to avoid unnecessary tension in the muscles and areas more prone to generate physical pain (back, neck and shoulders).

Our focus will be to calm and nurture ourselves on all levels during the class. Including Positive Affirmations, Visualizations and Chakra’s work and meditation to enhance the experience.

There is a meditation class in the morning and evening each day, and one of the benefits of our week-long retreats is that you can then take these practices home with you.

A very positive way to start 2022 on this New Year Retreat.

See top class yoga teacher Claudia’s yoga bio at the end of this page.

The Burren Yoga Retreat is located at the foot of the Burren hills nestled amongst the hazel trees.

You are surrounded with a vast choice of special places in the Burren where we go for hill walks, Nature Trail walks, walks by the sea, beautiful beaches and forests to explore.

Daily Outdoors in the Burren on all of our retreats.

On Thursday you may like an optional treatment in our massage therapy rooms, or you may decide to take some time to yourself to either explore the Burren or put your feet up to relax at the centre.

All our classes, outings and meals are optional, so you are free to join all or some as you please during the week.

However over 95% of people relish the freedom of not having to decide or choose what to do each day, and go with the full programme which is a well tried recipe which we have been running and improving on since 1999.

We are famous for our food and so many people have said they would come back time and time again just for the amazing vegetarian food.  Our chef will prepare all our vegetarian meals with organic and locally sourced vegetables and the finest ingredients.
